Ten Months Old

It’s been a crazy two months, beginning with excitement and a touch of nerves when we brought him home for the first time. We struggled a bit with potty training and accidents, tried various foods to find out which worked the best with his sensitive stomach, and even had to make a late night emergency call to his grandma for help! We learned that some toys interest him and others are useless. We watched with curiosity and a small bit of apprehension during his first play dates, and relaxed when he was able to make friends. We cheered when he was friendly toward the doctor and his assistants, and breathed a sigh of relief when we realized he settles down well for long naps. He sleeps all night quietly and contentedly in his cozy bed. We’re still working on manners around people (he loves people so much that he just can't contain himself), although we’re proud that his cuteness makes him quite popular around the neighborhood. Shiloh, we’re so glad that you’re our puppy! We love you!
